This video shows the winner of "Ukraine's Got Talent," Kseniya Simonova,
24, drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated sand table showing
how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World
War II. Her talent, which admittedly is a strange one, is mesmeric to
watch.

The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to
tears, and she won the top prize of about $75,000.

She begins by creating a scene showing a couple, sitting holding hands
on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear, and the happy
scene is obliterated.

It is replaced by a woman's face crying, but then a baby arrives, and
the woman smiles again. Once again, war returns, and Miss Simonova
throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman's face appears.

She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the
image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.

This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is
looking out on the monument from within a house.

In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside, and a man standing
outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye.

The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in
four of the population's being killed, with eight to 11 million deaths
out of a population of 42 million.

Kseniya Simonova says: "I find it difficult enough to create art
using paper and pencils or paintbrushes, but using sand and fingers is
beyond me. The art, especially when the war is used as the subject
matter, even brings some audience members to tears. And, there's surely
no bigger compliment."
